New PhD at NILU: Sofia Eirini Chatoutsidou

Sofia Eirini Chatoutsidou defended her PhD thesis at the Technical University of Crete on May 20 this year. The title of the thesis was “Physical processes of indoor aerosols in modern microenvironments”.

The thesis was carried out at NILU’s department of Atmosphere and Climate, and supported by the EU 7th framework programme HEXACOMM (Human Exposure to Aerosol Contaminants in Modern Microenvironments). Chatoutsidou focuses on indoor particles and their interactions, physical processes and reactions, which can alter their chemical composition, physical characteristics and concentration.

The defense was a bit longer than 2 hours and ended successfully. The dissertation committee consisted of seven people from the School of Environmental Engineering of the Technical University of Crete, the Institute of Nuclear Technology-Radiation Protection N.C.S.R. (Demokritos) of Athens and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Ispra.

A copy of her thesis is available in the library at NILU.
